Bél Clan – A Hungarian clan dating from the Árpád-era. Their domain was in the region of Molnos-Bél that later became County Borsod in northern Hungary. Several sources mention that converted Cumanians built the Bélháromkút Monastery in 1232, thus presumably this was a Cumanian clan. Evidence for this assumption is supported by the clan names Buken, Karul, Kene, Mikó, Ugra, Zerje, widespread amongst the Cumanian or related families. The descendants of this clan were the Bekényi and Béli families. – B: 0942, T: 7685.→Árpád, House of; Cumanians.
